COMPLETED Diet and the Early Development of Atlantic Cod

The Project aimed to improve early rearing diets for cod to achieve the growth rates required by the cod aquaculture industry in Atlantic Canada and Iceland. This project ran until March 31st, 2014, with all data collection complete, and manuscripts in development. Key findings indicate positive results from a diet of rotifers and artemia with ori-green enrichment.

This $892,280-project was a trans-Atlantic effort between Memorial University/Department of Ocean Sciences, Genome Atlantic, the Newfoundland Cod Broodstock Company, the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, Research & Development Corporation of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the Marine Research Institute (Reykjavik, Iceland).
